The Tooth Fairy!
We’ve had big doin’s at our house. The tooth fairy came last night!
The Friday before Thanksgiving I noticed that Grace’s front teeth looked a bit crooked and then I realized it was loose. It seemed really early so it caught me off guard.
After much wiggling…
When will it fall out? In my Thanksgiving turkey? In my sleep? Where? Where? Mamma, where!!?!?!
Apparently, the answer was in circle time at school while singing the “goodbye song”…
Doesn’t she look scared? She gets that from me…Something about teeth falling out is very creepy to me. I got warm and flushed…
Hey, I can watch my son’s insides be stitched up, I can watch his circumcision…but a loose tooth and some blood and oooh that bloody empty socket….UGH! I get light-headed!
But the smile is pretty cute!
So last night we put her tooth under her pillow for the Tooth Fairy. I didn’t think she would fall for it. But she slept so lightly that I actually sneaked (is that even a word? snuck gets underlined…) the tooth out and put the present under the pillow while I was talking to her.
Note to self: don’t put the tooth in a plastic bag, it’s too noisy…
She had so many questions about the Tooth Fairy!
How does the tooth fairy get here? What is her name? What does she wear? What color is her dress? Does she wear click-clock shoes? Why can’t we see her? Why is she shy? How big is she? What will she think of Daisy? Does she live with all the other fairies?
This morning I was in the shower and she came running in to the bathroom, “Momma, Momma, the tooth fairy came and she took my tooth!”
Me: “Did she leave you anything?
Grace: “Yes, a present!”
Me: “Well, what was in it?”
Grace: “I don’t know, I left it under there! Will you come get it with me, I’m a little scared!”
